I use Agent Mailings for my just listed and just sold postcards. But I also incorporate USPS Every Door Direct and mail my own postcards. And to give an added boost, I'll send out hand addressed and stamped mailings 1-2 times a year to my farm market.

   If you outsource it, take a look at VistaPrint.  I believe that they can set you up with USPS EDDM.

   Suggest:   Trade-Sized post cards with large print.  Letters can get tossed in the trash, unopened.  Even if they ditch your post card, chances are they read it.
